The young actors of award winning theatre group Viva are about to start a three day run of their latest musical.

Based on the novel Kipps by H G Wells, Half A Sixpence tells the tale of childhood friends Kipps and Ann.

When they were parted as children, Kipps cut a sixpence in half and told Ann to look at it whenever she missed him.

Years later they meet and re-kindle their childhood friendship, then everything changes.

The show takes place at The Brook in Soham from tomorrow-Friday, 7.30pm start. Tickets are £12 and are available from or via the box office at 01353 722 228.
